Back with a BANG!

I’ve been MIA for a while due to a variety of family issues and some missing Mojo. I think I found my mojo after all of issues of late.

So, I started by trying to ease back into stamping with a couple of projects I’ll share later. But that easing in is way over rated, so I just jumped in with both feet for this card.

This card combines 4 challenges - Color Throw Down #43 – Lavender Lace, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant, 365 Cards Challenge 71 which was a sketch challenge, 365 Cards challenge 76 “Four Corners” which was keeping the embellishments on the corners and 365 Cards challenge 83 “Make it Match” which was making a envelope to match your card.

This card actually came to me this morning while I was cutting some lilacs from my lilac bush. I love the smell of lilacs and am fortunate enough to have a decent size bush in my yard.

Happy Stampin'!
